If your device is running Android 4.0, you'll be glad to know that Chrome for Android beta received an update in the Play Store just a bit ago that brings a few new features, one of which many users have been waiting for: user agent switching. This means that no longer are you stuck on the mobile site, as you now have the option of choosing how to load sites. Yay!

When you want to totally reinvent yourself, a new look is definitely a good place to start. If you really want to say "hey, this is a new me!" then a name change can convey that message pretty well. I guess Read It Later wasn't happy with where it was in the hard knock life of an app in the Google Play Store, because it recently went under the knife to get a totally new interface, new features, as well as a new name.

How's this for amazing? You see a piece of sheet music, but you can't read it because you're a plebian, or perhaps you can read it but you want to hear it. SnapNPlay is an app that lets you take a picture of a line of sheet music and then plays back the notes on the page. This is amazing.

The app itself looks a little rough around the edges right now, but the concept is wonderful.

A PR just hit our inbox from the guys over at Quickoffice detailing their new "Connect by Quickoffice" app. Since we like Quickoffice, we decided to take a closer look. Here's the general gist of it: if you're a Quickoffice user, you can install the new app for free (with limited functionality) and save all of your documents in the cloud, allowing you to access view them from any PC, Mac, tablet, or phone.

Dropbox has been the reigning king of cloud storage and syncing for a few years now, but the competition is getting intense. LogMeIn, which is best known for its remote access apps, has just launched a cloud storage solution of its own called Cubby. Not only does Cubby come with 5GB of free storage to Dropbox's 2GB, but it also implements a peer-to-peer sharing system that will help you get around that limit.

Do you love The Daily Show? Do you love apps? Would you love an app that let you watch some of the The Daily Show's best moments on your mobile?

Dolphin Browser has always been one of the better browser alternatives on Android, and with version 8.0, it's about to get a bit better. In addition to a nice even version number, the update adds a menu bar along the bottom of the browser, an improved Add-on sidebar that's not confusing to look at, and a shiny new Dolphin button for easy access to the Dolphin Sonar and Gesture features.

The new menu bar is more than a little reminiscent of Android's Action Bar, however this one is still only triggered when you press the menu button, so it's not quite as handy.

In my opinion, having remote access to your desktop or laptop computers from your Android tablet is a must-have feature for all tablet owners. While there are several ways to do this, Splashtop is among the best. The thing is, the tablet optimized version (as well as the Tegra 3 version) is a bit on the pricey side. For a limited time, however, the Splashtop team has slashed the prices of their remote desktop apps in the Play Store.

Google Currents is probably the single best-looking Android app Google puts out, and since its initial release, it has also been so slow to sync that it's practically useless. But no longer - Currents has received its first major update, and rather than drag this thing out, I'll just present you with the changelog:

  • Sync speed - dramatic (7x) performance boost
  • Instant online sync - no need to press "sync". Just open an edition for latest content.
